Are you serious?

You sound a little biased.
And? Does that mean my stance isn't valid?
Honestly, did we pick him to represent the Indian tribes or the state of Oklahoma?
Are you serious? Who do you think make up a huge chunk of the tribal populations in the state? Citizens of the state who also happen to be tribal members.
My great grandparents on my dad’s side, paternal and maternal, were half Comanche in SW OK. As the times changed, they wanted nothing to do with the Indians and aligned more with the “white man’s” work ethic and gumption. Never went on the ‘roles’. The grandparents left in the late 40’s and went all around the world with the USAF, then settled in Texas. My wife and I wanted out of Texas in 2009, so we moved back to Oklahoma.
Wait. Is this a "lazy indian" stance? Not really sure what this has to do with anything in this thread . . . your great grandparents were ashamed of being indians. That's not new. Many people of that same generation were beaten into submission and thinking they were subhuman if they were indians.
I say the governor should try to represent all people.
He's pretty doing a horrible job of that right now in my opinion.
The Supreme Court has really stepped off in it. I think soon we may wish hunting & fishing compacts were the only thing affected. McGirt has really opened up a bunch of cans of big worms that we really haven’t seen fully impact the state yet. It could get a lot worse before it gets better, unfortunately. I have to think that the educated men and women on the bench had to have foreseen at least some of these problems.
Regardless, Stitt being petty is becoming one of those major problems that isn't doing anyone in the State any good.
